Its humour and conspiracy verging on sarcasm spread further,...

ENDO takes the notion of the black-boxing of technology to a conceptual critique and poetic sculptural interpretation. We are offered an object â a black-cased digital recorder, equipped with various sensors â allegedly registering data from its surroundings such as sound, camera image, GPS coordinates, brightness, air pressure, humidity, and temperature on a terabyte hard drive. Once the hard drive is saturated, recording stops, and the data becomes enclosed within the object, transforming...

The performance "10 000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid" visualizes the fascinating surface-structures of soap-bubble clusters by using laser light. Dmitry Gelfand and his partner Evelina Domnitch create sensual immersive environments that bring together physics, chemistry and computer technology. The auditive part of the performance is contributed by Andrei Smirnov, director of the Theremin-Center in Moscow.

The SETUN Conspiracy takes as its subject the SETUN computer, developed in 1958 by N.P. Brusenzov and his team at Moscow State University. Instead of the binary logic of regular computers, it was based on ternary logic. Hunger has created a performative installation which comprises a research archive, a tri-lingual publication, and an information office. The project’s echo of Cold War complots, secrecy and conspiracy in relation to technology and ideological power struggles, becomes timely in...

The critical appropriation and subversion of historical narratives is an artistic strategy that recently acquired significant presence in contemporary art. Michael Blum masters this field by attributing wit and humour to his works in various media – video, installation, and publications. In the video ‘The Three Failures’, Blum performs a playful take on the ramifications of the grand ideologies of the 20th century, and entwines them in an absurdist fairy tale: a male figure, dressed in a...

The 3. Prize was awarded to Gordan Savicic (at) for his project "Constraint City: The Pain of Everyday Life". 'Constraint City' is a critical performance in urban space that can be individually repeated by wearing a jacket consisting of straps equipped with motors and a ‘wi-fi enabled gaming console’. The motors tighten the straps when an enclosed wi-fi network is detected: the better the wi-fi signal is the tighter the jacket becomes and the more bruises its wearer is marked...
